Post: RE: Main Fuel Screw and Idle Speed

Everything's nice and free, it's an 80% veg 20% misfuel blend. Thanks for the advice, that's the fuelling wound in as far as the idle adjustment allows. Getting 20psi at 3,500rpm with not much smok...

Hi Johnny, I've made some progress. I wanted to get the gov mod done first before messing with the fuelling, so I did this last weekend. With a lot of trial and error I have the car idling nicely a...

I rebuilt a BE3 box with shafts from a donor box. So an admission of being lazy, I whacked it all together without paying much attention to input shaft shimming. The box has the original shim installe...

2.1 filter should be 88mm tall versus 60mm for 1.9. Later model 2.1's might have used a 60mm filter but would like the 88mm housing please :)

Software is provided, very straight forward. There are few people on planet earth that know more about mapping the F4R engine than Henk, his maps are first class. Got one on my 182 :)

Look at a fastchip rstuner, you can do the remap yourself, and do tons of other obd diagnostics stuff. The guy who makes them, Henk, knows his stuff. He can do a custom map if you send him data logs.

I seem to recall these are a bit worn, I can dig them out and get some pictures. Reusing shells from another engine is probably not recommended anyway, but I'm sure loads of people do.
